Any advice?

So i picked up a pair in the snuff suede (need to get a picture up--they are nice! makes me want more carminas). Anyway, I sized down half a size from my usual and that seems right, at least sockless (how i mostly plan to wear them--wish i had sized down half a size on my pair of loafers from RL). So I got 10UK in the loafers when normally I think I'd go for 10.5UK. I don't have any other carminas to compare with, but my Alden indie boots and most other shoes are 11.5.

Carmina's finishing is much nicer than Alden, and from the calf I've seen, head and shoulders better.

As far as the new kicks, wow. The Jumpers and the brogues are SICK. I wish I could justify them.

everyone's finishing within 20% of either direction of alden is better than alden's finishing. this is from someone that owns probably 8+ pairs of alden's. i'd argue carmina finishing is somewhere between my crocketts and my lobbs.

New bespoke overcoat, fabric is from 1936 and is the heaviest thing I've ever handled...prob close to around 40 oz. Design inspired by an English mod 60's coat I saw on eBay.

Does anyone have pics of any men's Epaulet shirts from the back? I do like a slim fit, and the models all look great wearing them, but I've always considered darting to be something more common with women's clothing than men's, and all Epaulet shirts seem to have it. I want to pick up a couple shirts, but would like to see the darting first, and there aren't any pics on the website.

Glad to see the shoes getting some use. Looking good while doing so Rob!

Perfect, thanks, NYR!

^The darts are least noticeable on patterned shirts, IMO.

Have the invoices for cognac bal boot been sent out?

post #16168 of 33576
Swung by Orchard St. today to pick up one of the Fidelity pea coats. This is an awesome piece, I'm going to wear the hell out of it as soon as the weather gets cold enough!

The new Carminas are f'ing killing me. See, I'm trying to be good and not spend all my money given we are buying a new apartment, but oh those shoes! The Alt Wiens are amazing. I want a pair so badly. The longwings are ridiculous.

Please promise that you will do another balmoral boot with suede and calf, but this time on a york sole! But not until I have more money...

If I had to pick two favorite Epaulet items it might be the Triton jacket and the Thompson bluchers in blue suede. But there's a big list chasing right behind those.
